That happens a lot with translation from Chinese/Asian.

For example a "I give you a life gamble" would probably make most westerners think of taking a gamble that's going to change their lives and probably for the better, like a risky investment perhaps

But it actually means risking your life physically. Westerners would probably say "I give you a Death challenge"

Rule 18?



I think commenting on an assassination from over 2000 years ago is different than (humorously) calling for the decapitation of a couple caught dogging in a car park (without being accused of depositing their soiled prophylactic contrivances in the flower bed, I might add), but fair is fair.

I am hereby warning myself not to call for the assassination of historical political figures who renumbered the months of the year.

Whereas for the names of the months I would prefer:

Thorin, Balin, Dwalin, Oin, Gloin, Dori, Nori, Ori, Bifur, Bofur, Bombur, Fili, and Kili

And February 29 would be its own month: Bilbo.

    Yes, John Stewart,"gold," a one hit wonder.

    Good tune, with Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham joining in.

    Before they joined Fleetwood Mac Stevie and Lindsey put together a great album, "Buckingham Nicks."

    It was like magic the first time I heard their little known power song "Frozen Love" on FM in the Colorado Rockies in 1975.

    I think that is what is usually called "literary license"
    it generally, however, refers to fiction not non-fiction

    it wouldn't have sounded as strong if he used the words "one quarter"

    of course, Marx didn't mind straying into fiction - he was trying to find powerful words to start a revolution - not please critics of his writing style


    it sounds like you don't appreciate Marx or his writings_________certainly understandable

    I don't like that he was trying to push the world towards Communism - I'm against that

    but I love reading his works - his writings - his choices of words

    but I don't care too much for money

    I always preferred to think of it as "I don't care for too much money", sung with a Spanish accent. I don't know why.

    Paul McCartney did express some displeasure at those who changed the lyrics to "Yesterday". Instead of "I said something wrong", they changed it to something like "I must've done something wrong". Paul saw it as the narrator as equivocating, not completely owning up to his mistake.

    Returning to quotable quotes, I'll share one since until now it's nowhere on the Internet. Before I was a teenager, in the 70s, an edition of Mad Magazine had a panel mocking modern art, where the painter gave the following gem while explaining his painting to an on-looker. It was so choice that I decided to commit it to memory, which I'm glad I did:

    "It symbolizes man's inner quest for himself as he listens to the vibrations of two molecules in communion with a yak."
